    ....Mr Musk then donned his pure gold Ironman suit and flew over the crowd to their endless applause.

    Then he woke up.

    Larry Ellison is too young-looking for a man who passed 70. Or maybe it's all plastic surgery that he spends his fortune on...

    Other than that, I never cared anything for him or his business. All I know about him and his business is that he bought Sun, thus got his hands on Java licensing and f##ked it up enough that Google and others turned away from Java. Well done, Larry!

    Here's for your tombstone: "Java Killer". Start carving ;)

    I bet it's really hard to get a meeting together...

    It'd be like Hurd'ing Catz.

    I have family who are in their 60s and 70s who look like they aren't a day over 50. One or two of them could pass for early 40s. A decent roll of the genetic dice and having enough foresight not to cook yourself at the beach every summer can go a long way.
  7. Mr. Ellison is most likely looking so well not due to a surgeon's skill, but his own skills at people management and his pure wealth. Personal trainers, eating good fresh food, access to advanced medicines and hormone therapy that wealthy individuals can afford make this possible. But it takes a smart and motivated man to work it into his life. Same as all those beautiful 50+ women you see...

    That said, his business is reprehensible and likely also illegal, but of course courts and money decide these things. One should not disparage his other skills because of that. I wish I could afford his nutritionist, cook and personal trainer and medical therapies. That's real health you are seeing.
